Unexpected move in the case of the disappearance of Dzmitry Zavadski. The case resumed “due to the conduct of additional investigations measures”.
Volha Zavadzkaya, Dzmitry’s mother, informed the Human Rights Center Viasna.
On 7 April she received a notice from the Procurator’s Office of the Republic of Belarus, which concerned “the resumption of the preliminary investigation in compliance with part 3 Article 249 of the Code of Criminal Procedures of the Republic of Belarus”, and said “the preliminary investigation into the criminal case 980159 initiated because of the disappearance of your son Dzmitry Zavadski on 7 July 2000 was resumed on 4 April 2005 in view of the needed investigation measures in this case”.
Volha Zavadzkaya believes that the new moves in the case can be attributed to the resumption of the case of the journalist Georgi Gangadze in Ukraine.
